the effects of our carbon dioxide emissions on our atmosphere and oceans. our defense and intelligence communities warn of the threats posed by climate change to national security and international stability. economists recognize the distortion of energy markets that overlook the true cost of carbon pollution, and government accountants now list climate change as a threat to our fiscal stability. now, today, as we enter the passover and easter season and as catholics the world over celebrate the selection of a new pope, we turn to voices of faith. they, too, call upon us. they call upon us to heed the moral imperatives of protecting creation and seeking justice for all people. they call upon us to reflect on our faith, on our relationship to our world and each other and on our responsibility to future generations. and they call upon us as president obama reminded us in his inaugural address to preserve our planet commanded to our care by god. i lay no claim to religious authority, but i must believe this -- something that harms others, something that disturbs god's creation, something
in the defense of the majority that that's the way it's been for several years, both when the republicans were in charge and when the democrats are in charge. thea's thacharge that doesn't mean it is right. you have to share it. so then we had to turn around and start voting on the amendments the next morning in the budget committee and we weren't part of that process, because it was on partisan lines. i was particularly disheartened by one amendment that failed on a party-line vote that was offered by senator portman from ohio. his amendment was simply asking the congressional budget office to provide additional information with the cost estimates that it provides on legislation affecting revenues. that's right. it was just asking for additional information. and every member of the majority voted against it. how could a request for additional information be so partisan? we can and must do better for our constituents and our country. several weeks from now we may see the president's budget proposal. of course it'll be late to the game since the house and senate have already acted on the budget

of irresponsibility in the republican budget is defense. instead of increasing pentagon spending, we should reform it. the most obvious target is the nuclear arsenal larger than anything we need for nuclear deterrence. 10% of our nuclear weapons would decimate russia. a handful of missiles would wipe north korea off the map. yet they propose to spend over 2/3 of a trillion dollars over the next 10 years on this bloated arsenal. before we increase the pentagon budget, maybe we should figure out why the f-35 joint strike fighter, which is now seven years behind schedule, 70% over budget, and the pentagon still doesn't know how it's going to meet the more than $1 trillion in operating and maintenance cost. amazingly the republicans want to increase spending for the pentagon, the only major budget so flawed it can't even be audited. there are bipartisan opportunities to reduce and reform the military, but you're not hearing about it in the republican budget this week. instead of a republican rerun of a bad reality tv show, let's consider working together on areas to change how the government does busines
on today. big changes for the department of defense. as part of the sequester cuts. good morning, lauren. we are talking about civilian employees of the department of defense. that can include men and women who have served our country in uniform who have now come back as civilians. >> it could effect hundreds of thousands of pentagon workers. furlough notices for civilian department of defense attorneys will be today. those are the notices, it will be a little more than a month before they begin their unpaid leave. it is part of the effort to cut spending in the wake of sequestration. the unpaid leaves are expected to start as soon as april 25th. few woeshgs will be exempt here. they will be taking one day a week unpaid and that works out to be a 20 percent annual pay cut. >> there's a man i know it is happening to he lost a leg fighting for our country in iraq now he's a civilian so he could be furloughed along with many, many others as well. we will keep following that one. talk with us about voters. >> they are nervous about the economy and the debt unlike leaders in washington. they
, they want to cut the budget deficits and cut defense spending and simplify the tax code and lower tax rates. in a deal with president obama they could get the first four, more deficit reduction, protect defense, the democratic president would get some cover in cutting medicare and social security and they could simplify the tax code by taking out expenditures. they are now saying they want none of those things and also not going to get the tax rates and keep the sequester and not have a deal. i've asked a lot of them to walk me through the reasoning here and honestly never come to an answer i understand a little bit. >> does that mean they're post policy. even some things that seem like constants don't actually a matter them, it's pure politics, just positioning themselves vis-a-vis the president and not interested in a particular outcome for the country? >> i would like to have an answer where that isn't true. i really would. i've been trying to find it. i'm sure part is i'm not smart enough to do so or found the right people to have spoken to them. it's hard to come up with one. we can go
